HONG KONG, Aug 15, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Organised by the HKTDC, four fairs will open tomorrow (16 August) at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC): the 29th Food Expo, the 10th Hong Kong International Tea Fair, the third Beauty & Wellness Expo and the fifth Home Delights Expo. The International Conference of the Modernization of Chinese Medicine & Health Products (ICMCM), jointly organised by HKTDC and the Modernized Chinese Medicine International Association Ltd, will also be held on 16-17 August. The four fairs will welcome close to 2,100 exhibitors showcasing a wide variety of delicacies and products to provide an all-round shopping and sourcing experience for consumers and trade buyers. The events will also create cross-sector business opportunities and enhance cultural exchange between Hong Kong and other regions.
To promote environmental awareness and waste reduction, a pilot on-site tableware lending service will be launched at the Food Expo this year to reduce the use of disposable plastic utensils. Visitors can borrow a set comprising a reusable food container and wooden utensils with a HK$20 deposit in cash (at the entrance of Hall 1E), and return the used set and reclaim the deposit when leaving the fairground (at Hall 1A and 3E Concourses). Available while stocks last, the service is run jointly by the HKTDC, NWS Holdings Limited and social enterprise BottLess, with the wooden utensils provided by Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (Management) Limited.
